Start here: the quick guide to caring

Caring can turn your life upside down or steadily increase without you noticing how it's taking over your life. It can have its ups as well as its downs. You can feel alone or you can find family and friends rallying round.

No two people who are caring for loved ones are the same and caring can affect your life in many different ways. 

There’s so much information out there that you may be wondering where to start so we’ve put together all the basics you’ll need to know when you first start caring including financial help, practical help, looking after your health and juggling work and caring.
